Collagen 101: What is collagen anyway?
Collagen, simply put, is a protein, and it’s the
most abundant protein found in mammals,
making up as much as a third of the human
body’s protein. It’s an amino acid that serves as the
connective tissue that holds our bodies together, and
keeps skin looking young, bones staying strong and
joints moving smoothly.
By the time people hit 30, they start to produce less and less collagen, causing their skin to become thin and to wrinkle. Humans carry 28 different types of collagen in our bodies, and five different types of collagen make it into supplements. These types are all animal-based, from cows, chicken or fish, and categorized as Type I, Type II, Type III, Type V and Type X. Most of the collagen products that consumers consume are either Type I, II or III. Type I—the type that keeps skin supple and smooth— makes up 90% of the collagen in human bodies. Bovine collagen has Type I and III and helps skin stay elastic and hydrated; chicken collagen has Type II for joint and cartilage (and eggshell membrane which contains Type I and V) and marine collagen contains Type I and III, and is thought to help skin and cartilage.
